It is without a doubt a very exciting time for SFA Athletics! Here's a recap of what has happened over the last few weeks:

  • SFA Bowling visited the White House
  • SFA Football brought home Chief Caddo
  • SFA Ladyjack Basketball Crowned Champions at Nugget Classic in Reno
  • SFA Basketball Beat #1 Duke

To top all that off SFA Volleyball won the Southland Conference Tournament in Conway, Arkansas to clinch their SECOND straight berth in the NCAA Tournament!  The Ladyjacks had a phenomenal season going 31-1 overall. No that is not a typo! Losing only one match all season. I got to attend several matches at the "Pressure Cooker" that is Shelton Gym.  The support behind SFA Volleyball is incredible.  Many nights there was not a open seat!

This past Sunday was Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. A Watch Party was held at Bottlecap Alley in Nacogdoches and yet again the support showed up and it was packed! As the announcer revealed Stephen F. Austin would be heading not that far away to Waco to play USC at 5pm on December 6th!   Not that far away from East Texas so I am certain that there will be a ton of purple in the area.

We need to send them off in a grand way right?! Earlier this morning SFA Athletics announced that there will be a Grand Send-Off for the Ladyjacks at the Baker Pattillo Student Center at 6:30pm. If you are around make plans to head out there and show the Ladyjacks that we have their backs!  It is no doubt that I am a huge fan but I hope you can join me out there as we #RaiseTheAxe
